Get It Done envisions a world where people take creative collective action in their local communities to create impact on what matters most.

Our mission is to make grassroots tools for creative social change accessible to everyone, to feel supported and motivated to start their own thing, to get it done.


Get It Done was started in 2017 by a grassroots community of young creatives; born out of a frustration at a lack of entry-level creative opportunities, and aiming to encourage a 'doing' culture across Manchester.


Striving to demystify ‘getting things done’, we put on pop-up creative events and activations across the city, building a network of artists and organisations radically changing their spaces.


Over the years, our work shifted from events to embedded community projects, prioritising long-term impact and engagement.  Our self-initiated journey has led us to work with national partners and provide thousands with free or low-cost opportunities to engage with creativity, culture and heritage.



Get It Done believes a new future is possible, where communities feel supported to address pressing social issues through creativity, leading to positive and tangible change in our local environments. Transformative power lies in community and collaboration.


Get It Done has three purposes:

Businesses and institutions are looking to build their community and social offerings in a rapidly socially-conscious world. By aligning community 

initiatives to their brand and identity through support and investment, they meet corporate responsibilities and gain access to new and untapped audiences and talent.

Following the pandemic, social isolation and individualism is more prevalent than ever, leaving people dissatisfied. There's a desire to collaboratively address community issues, yet a sense of powerlessness limits their ability to make a difference in causes they deeply care about.

In addition, there is a surge of creative changemakers across the UK, especially young creative talent, looking for opportunities to make a difference, support their local communities and professionalise their creative skills.

We take action. Get It Done links these three purposes through delivering impactful creative projects and bespoke education programmes, engaging diverse communities and supporting young entrepreneurs to drive social impact.


Together, we get it done. Read more about what we do here.
